The meeting of the striking- stu

will be in school again tomorrow, if
they are not asked to apologise or

of ine expelled students.

as I was certain were for the rery
best Intei cnta and management of
the' school and no student Is to be
exempted from obedlenee to those
rule, the principal stated.
..Following his statement the board
of trustees passed a vote of confidence
in the jfrincipal and authorised him
to take any action he deemed neces
sary for putting down the student in
surrection. The agreement to which every nign
' school student had to subscribe Tues-
; day, or leave, was as iouowb:
"1 promise on my honor to obey the
I instructions of the principal of the
1 school. 1 promise to conduct my sell
properly on the premises of the school
at all limes.'
Students Behave Without Promise.
It was at first the intention of Mr.
Fowler to require each student to
sitrn this uiedse in written form. Af
ter a conference with Dr. Ramey. Mr.
Fowier stated that he would be satis
fied with a verbal promise on the stu
dent's part to Mbe good." Student
representatives said Tuesday that
when Mr. Hughey was principal ev
erybody was good without having; to
promise to be food.
The principal a reason for - issuing
the order Monday against applause,
after having come to an agreement
wiih th students on Friday to per
mit applause, was that on arrival at

The Principal's Statement.
"At the lunch period they became
so insultingly noisy and offensive in
their remarks that I called the stu
dents together into the auditorium
and explained what we had agreed on
at the conference, telling them that
they must agree to obey the authority
of the principal, or leave.
I found It almost impossible to
get quiet. There was a bunch of
boys near the front who were
making ut unusual amount of
noise. I spoke to them several
times and then walked up to the
nearest one, a big fellow. MeGln

came quiet.
There was another boy I "
i don't know his name, but he was
a big fellow who sat In front
of me and kept raising his arm '

muscle. I walked up to him and
told him to take down hlsnrm.
When he refused I gave him a
I met another pupil later In
the corridor and asked him
where? he was going. lie wouldn't
tell me, I toid him to go back
to his room. He refused. I then
took him by the arm and shoved
him through the door and told
him to stt down. lie would nt
sit down and made a'motlon ns If
to hit toc. I then s tanned him
across the face. He made a rush
toward me and I cot hl head un

shook hands.
I purpose to have every student
sign that pledge or get out. I shall
put it up to them tomorrow, if a pu
pil refuses he will be requested to
go home a n rl remain there unt 11 he
will so agree."
Dr. Bameys Statement.
After Mr. Fowler made his state
ment. Dr. Ramey made the following
statement on behalf of the trustees:
"Each and every member of the
school board has a child or children
in the public schools. We have the
interest of the schools at heart and,
therefore, heartily disapprove of the
method the pupils of the high school
have used In trvinp to carry their
